You want unique art and architecture?

Try Windy Tales, Tweeny Witches, and a new one that's being released next week on DVD - Song of the Sea.

Or how about the first French / Japanese animation collaboration - Ōban Star Racers. This one is pretty unique, since none of the characters were drawn with a nose (there's actually a story as to why).


Song of the sea has some very impressive use of color,texture and transparency. The layering is amazing.

The underwater scenes in Nagi no Asukara are beautiful

Not just the underwater scenes, everything in Nagi Asu is incredible. Definitely the first thing to come to mind.

But also basically anything from PA Works or KyoAni. The animation and colours are always amazing in both.

SHAFT's stuff is also great. 'Specially the Monogatari series. I love their way of storytelling, and their art is always very nice.

As a series alone, I've got to agree with Loridep and say that Your Lie in April is one of the best anime I've seen artwise in a while. Also, Zankyou no Terror and Death Parade, recently, have been stunning.

My favorite would probably be Mushishi's art for its attention to detail. They pull of the nature aspect of it perfectly and I love it.


Though I have to give some credit to Problem Children's art

It's colorful enough to show its light hearted nature while refraining from making it seem like I was on an acid trip like a certain anime *cough cough* NGNL *cough*

Are we talking about what straight up looks the prettiest on a computer screen or does artistic style count for something? There are very few shows I remember blowing me away visually.

Tough call, for me it's between Sidonia no Kishi and Zoids: New Century Zero.

Revolutionary Girl Utena was one of the more visually interesting shows I've come across.

OK for Animation and Sound Quality and Lighting it has to be straight up




For color I would say
No game No life or Problem Children (Mondaiji)
You either have Javascript turned off or an old version of Flash Player.

Second I would say Nagi no Asukara and Nisekoi

Story aside, and I mean story aside (this dove spectacularly to become absolutely terrible), I liked the art in Magical Warfare. The only good thing about the whole show.

Mekakucity Actors was unique and I liked the emphasis they put on some scenes through their use of colours. And its Shaft, and I love Shaft. Which reminds me, ef also has brilliant visuals and uses animation as a great device for depicting the emotional state of the characters. Simple text on a plain backdrop can be very powerful and ef takes advantage of that, and other visual cues, to create a truly stunning show.

Redline bar none. No anime can even hope to hold a candle to the animation of that movie. I'm shocked that hasn't been mentioned yet.

Aesthetically? I prefer a significantly more realistic style with smaller, heavily detailed eyes, like the Nana, New Ai no Kusabi, Perfect Girl Evolution, & Paradise Kiss, or the The Wallflower, Petshop of Horrors, Trinity Blood, & Parasyte mangas that the anime art doesn't live up to. I also have a thing for 70s Shoujo & 80s Seinen. If the guys look like flat-chested women & have long hair, that's usually good enough for me.

After thinking about it.... usually the shows I'm watching at the time.

After thinking about it a bit more; Natsu no Arashi, Mawaru Penguin Drum, Madoka Magica, Xxx-holic, Moyashimon Returns, Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu, a bunch of others I either can't think of or just happen to be slipping my mind right now.
Oh.... Tenshi No Shippo, Chu... (The first one went off the rails badly.)
